When 'strong' is 'too strong', and a new gig.

I never thought I would ever say this, but boy oh boy was I glad to see the bottom of my coffee cup this morning! That was some of the nastiest, strongest coffee I have ever tasted! I don't know what Dickidoo did but the coffee was so black that an extra helping of creamer didn't even lighten it up.

Shhhhh.... listen, I think I can hear the hair on my chest growing!

I've got me a new gig. I'm a guest blogger at the MA- Motherhood with Attitude website. It's pretty cool because the focus is on real moms, not the Suzy Homemaker stereotype mom with 2.5 children, a cat, a dog and a white picket fence. Naturally I fit right in with my 5.0 children, pet crayfish, 6 inch cannibal goldfish with a taste for expensive tropical fish and bent and buckled chain link fence. The unveiling for the guest bloggers page should be some time next week, I'll post a link then.

Rocky finally got new panties. No more un-thongs for her. Now she has those cute little boy cut undies that kind of look like boxers. They even have a little fly. Not really sure why anyone would put a fly on a pair of panties but it's there just the same.

Do you like my new picture? I needed a photo for my guest blog deal and the best picture I could find was that 4 year old shot of me with a bottle of beer, which depicts me perfectly but probably isn't appropriate for the mommy website so I took some with a coffee cup instead. No, my mug isn't empty, I was sucking down java like crazy in between shots. Notice the un-natural way I am holding my cup? Usually I just grab the mug around the center and hold it like that but I was trying to hide the Maker's Mark logo on the front... Kentucky bourbon is probably even less appropriate on a Mommy site than beer!

I guess a bottle of Wild Turkey is out of the question?

Just knowing this photo was "based on a true picture", and that picture included beer...and this picture includes a mug with a Maker's Mark logo...that makes my day. It's a great shot! Congrats on the new gig, very exciting :)

OK, seriously. I really didn't need the description of Rocky's new panties. TMI for this old guy.

Love Rocky's hair...(even tho I died a little inside when seeing the picture)

and glad the mice are gone, well except for the one being stalked.

REGINA said...

first, i think you are so beautiful.

second, i think your comment about the coffee is hilarious....the same thing happened to me this am. i don't usually drink coffee except on really cold days, but today i wanted iced coffee. whoever made it must have put in 10or more scoops. wooooowzer. it burned the bottom out of 3 cups.

i love the new pic. makes you look very young. not that you looked old to start with. never mind.....taking the time to get foot out of mouth.

ok, congrats on the motherblog thingie. waiting (impatiently) on the link, lol.

blessings,

regina

I love this new picture!! How is it you look younger now than your last photo? No fair! Or maybe you have just mastered the art of air-brushing? Congrats on your new gig.
